The service I offer is a professional one…in the sense that, like others, it is there to make your life easier, to save you time and to be more efficient.
To have great personal style you have to go clothes shopping. You need the right amount of clothes in complimentary colours, fitted perfectly, from the right shops and at the right price. Just find the time to do it, battle your way through the shops and navigate out the items that won’t work for you…
OR WOULD YOU RATHER I HELPED YOU?
I trained with Europe’s Leading Image Consultancy Colour Me Beautiful. Whatever your age or needs, I can help you to transform your appearance by showing you how to make the most of yourself. The services I offer are no longer just for those who are in the public eye or have a huge disposable income – they are for everyone.
A consultation with me is more then just “the information” it is a whole experience. I have a private studio in my garden, where we can really concentrate on YOU.
I very much value word of mouth recommendations – they are the life blood to my business…so as a thank you for referring any of your friends to me who then go on to enjoy a consultation with me, I will give you 10% off your next session with me.

Kate is a great listener and very effectively applied her professional knowledge to identify the colours and style that worked for my shape, my lifestyle and my aspirations. I can now specifically target a handful of items in a store, based on what they would look like on me. The cost of the initial consultation will be more than justified, if I never again buy that coat or dress that was never going to work. To fully benefit from her insights, I then invited Kate to visit my home to apply the theory. Over three very fun hours, Kate removed anything that was not appropriate; listed those items that I was missing and after taught me how to pull together and accessorise the perfect outfits for any occasion. Kate then went on to browse shops online with me, to identify what to buy to fill the gaps, in an affordable but aspirational way. Warm, approachable and honest, Kate is like that best friend who has perfect taste, but can also miraculously apply it to you. My wardrobe is currently feeling gorgeous - it all now works together beautifully, while I can set my own pace to shop for those gap items. This superb experience was a long overdue; a fantastic investment in myself: I feel empowered once more; able to confidently pull together a relaxed outfit which has style, thought and an element of me.

'I have now had the privilege of working with Kate over three different projects and as an organiser of sometimes very large and complex events I am always thrilled to find someone who is reliable, can work well to deadlines and follows through with their commitments. Kate's organisation and presenting skills are second to none and she engages brilliantly with her audience in both pre- planned presentations and when put on the spot with question and answer sessions. Kate has also attended fashion events I have organised as a personal shopper to give advice to attendees and this has been extremely well received - store owners and customers alike have been really pleased with the extra element this brings to shopping events. Kate is also an excellent communicator when it comes to the pre event work that takes place. I would be thrilled to work with her again very soon.

"I wanted to believe I knew my own style, however, having the consultation with Kate showed me that I had a whole lot to learn! Since then my shopping experiences have been so positive and the compliments have flooded in. Worth every penny...and more!”
- Christine Roberts
"I still cannot believe the change in myself since I asked Kate to help me sort out my wardrobe and take me shopping. The whole experience was so enlightening. Kate was incredibly helpful, and made it so relaxing, stress free and extremely useful. Since then many people have commented on how good I look, asked if I have been on holiday or lost weight…and I it’s because I am wearing colours and styles of clothes suit me and I now I know where to find them!"

"Thank you so much for coming to the North Cotswolds Ladies Supper Club lunch on Monday. Everyone enjoyed your talk enormously and there were lots of compliments and chatter from the ladies as they went home (always a good sign). I think we will all be looking at our own wardrobes – and each other - over the next few months. It was lovely to meet you and I will certainly recommend you to others. It was good to have a talk that was informative – and also fun."
- Sandra Gee
"I have come away with a lot more confidence in knowing what will suit my tall, flat chested frame! I can say that now with a smile and not a cringe because of your help. You are such a lovely lady and your kind words were a massive help ....I feel as though the fog has gone, the blinkers lifted and the light can now, at last, find its way through! It was great to know that the items I was wearing today had the right colour tones so I was doing a little bit right, albeit sub consciously! I will be shouting your name as loud as I can to people! Can't wait to tell all my work colleagues about how fabulous you are. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me feel just a bit more fabulous again!"
- Mrs Claire L
"My wardrobe weeding session with Kate was a fantastic experience. To have my wardrobe firstly completely sorted out and put into sections was the first thing and then to learn how to put my clothes together into outfits and to utilise better what I already had was so useful. By the time Kate left, my wardrobe was tidy, I had at so many different outfits to experiment with and I had already gained some confidence about how I should dress and look. Highly recommend it!"
- Caroline Chalkely
"Thank you so much for totally transforming my view of clothes shopping! Usually I hate it as nothing fits and everything I think will be nice looks awful on me - I usually get home feeling deflated that I've spent money on things I won’t wear. HOWEVER, after having my colours done and going to one of your wardrobe sessions I go shopping looking only for my 'wow' colours and go with an idea of what is missing in my wardrobe instead of buying another woolen grey cardigan! Thanks Kate, you've really transformed clothes for me!"
- Annabel Gonifas
"I had got into a rut with my clothes and had lost confidence in knowing what colours and styles suited me and equally what didn’t. Not only did the consultation with Kate open up my mind and eyes to some really fun colours that I never previously would have gone for, but she also clarified which styles work for me, demonstrated ways to make items/outfits work, and gave advice on which shops would suit me best. The prospect of going shopping no longer fills me with dread as it once would have done. Kate has helped me to think much more about how items can be incorporated in to my overall wardrobe rather than buying the one off items that never quite work. Kate is a fun, friendly and totally reassuring presence in a world that can be utterly baffling and over-whelming."
